Hornets buzz as Mustangs left ragged

RUGBY LEAGUE: It was the clash of South Burnett teams with Cherbourg Hornets taking out the win against the Murgon Mustangs 32-20 in the 'clash for cash' competition at the weekend.

With five teams competing from Mundubbera, Gayndah, Eidsvold, Cherbourg and Murgon, it was a riveting game of league.

Mundubbera Tigers president and coach Cameron MacDonald said he was surprised to see the whole community come out and support the event.

"We weren't expecting a huge crowd but I was very pleased to see around 300 people attend and show their support to the players," MacDonald said.

"It was a really good day, and all the games was played with the right sportsmanship, it was really fun and entertaining to watch.

"It was a really well supported event."

MacDonald said he was proud of his players and their performance was good.

"We played alright, we played Cherbourg first and lost 18-12 then won against Eidsvold 12-10," he said.

"We made it to the semi-finals where we played Cherbourg again and they played well."

MacDonald said Cherbourg are the team to beat.

"They're a team to watch during the rugby league season, they're always playing the best rugby league and it was good to see them perform on the weekend," he said.

The hornets took home $1000 with the mustangs taking home $200.

Gayndah Gladiators coach Robert Linsket said he was proud of the boys efforts.

"It was a positive feeling coming out today, the boys were really keen to get back into it with a few games," Linkset said.

"I couldn't single out a player because they've all stood out today- it's been a great team effort."

The Mundubbera Tigers would like to thank everyone for making the event a huge success.
